Get to know our developer intern-extraordinaire, Mark Goldberg!
Q: Tell us some of your go-to “techy” outlets that are a part of your day-to-day.
A: I use my laptop to watch videos on youtube, spend time reading books on my iPad, and spend quite a bit of time playing video games, often the original Star Wars Battlefront.
Q: Mac or PC?
A: Mac. The interface makes more sense and they are easier to use. Also, many of the advantages PC offers, such as more processing power, don’t really affect what I usually use computers for.
Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
A: I’d say shapeshifting. It offers a wide variety of possibilities (faster transport by changing into a light particle, more intelligence from shapeshifting my brain, etc). It would also mean I could change into another superhero (assuming he or someone else with powers exists in this hypothetical universe) and have all of his/her powers.
Q: Who’s your favorite superhero?
A: I’d say Martian Manhunter. He has an interesting backstory and cool powers, including shapeshifting.
Q: If you could travel back in time and live in any past era, when would you choose?
A: Even if we ignore the problems time travel could cause, I’d stay in the present. As cool as seeing Rome or Egypt in its prime, quality of life has improved a lot since then. Not to mention that the wealth gap was much larger for most of civilization.
